Run-down, dirty beach with hypodermic needles and condoms lying around. Also has open drainage running directly into the ocean from a nearby shanty town. Pity it has so much potential. Avoid it for now.

We have driven all over Costa Rica and my husband and I hated this place, luckily we were just driving through. Extremely dirty, locals were trying to get us the pay for parking at the beach, and my husband was approached by some guy begging...More
A noisy, boisterous and untidy area; unlike anything we had seen in all of Costa Rica. Maybe OK for the locals, but definitely not for us. Nothing to recommend about this place. Drive 20 minutes south to Playa Grande and you'll be in another world.
I guess that when you go on holidays and the place you stayed at is not what you expected or is simply awful, you will not share it with your friends, on social media, blogs, etc. No, you'll pretend you had a good time! That's...More

By far, the prettiest, least crowded and widest beach we explored in Guanacaste. Had a rental car, so went to
There are beach experiences and then there's this. We drove up to a small cove with crystal clear water. There are hundreds of fish available to view with snorkel and views on all sides above water. We chose a canopy with six chairs for $20...More
The beach in front of the town is just average. It struck me as dirty and the water is not very clear. It is not far to a much prettier beach, either Conchal to the south or north to Playa Flamingo.
